Forum: audio Subject: downloading a whole directory

how do I open the directory after having downloaded same?
perhaps question should be: with what do i open the directory?

directory in question via: http://www.archive.org/details/HancocksHalfHour_481,
http://www.archive.org/compress/HancocksHalfHour_481.

and neither winzip nor 7zip recognize folder.
sincere appreciation for asssitance with this query.

My guess is that you didn't manage to download the whole thing... perhaps a connection glitch during download? You should have ended up with HancocksHalfHour_481.zip (784 MB) and it seems to work OK for me.

I got the right MB.
I got the right name, but excluding the extension [i.e. ".zip"].
Even adding the extension I didn't get file to decompress.
I can run it again, but it may be less of a pain to download item by item.

Thank you for swift reply.
Would I be indiscrete to state location of Hancock episodes elsewhere on net, considering BBC's opinion on what is and isn't in public domain?

With appreciation

allan

Purely a personal opinion, this. I am no copyright expert (and I also just happen to be logged in as librivoxbooks. ;)) but this is what the UK Copyright Service says in Fact sheet P-01 UK Copyright Law:

"Sound Recordings and broadcasts

50 years from the end of the calendar year in which the work was created, or,

if the work is released within that time: 50 years from the end of the calendar year in which the work was first released."

So if these radio programmes were released before 1959 (and I think they were) they should be PD.
